i'm worldly and well traveled but enjoy living the small-town life here in sequim, where i moved 4 months ago from santa monica. i'm intelligent, athletic, compassionate, and comfortable in my own skin. people say that i'm very self-assured, well spoken, and well read. i enjoy acting, reading, films, sports, good conversation and entertaining at home. i had my own successful corporate communications business in california and was able to retire very early. now i go kayaking and hiking, take french class 3 hours a week, participate in a foreign policy discussion group, and just got a major part in an upcoming play here at the olympic arts theatre. that means a lot of memorizing....hope my brain is still up to the task! i'm looking for a guy who would appreciate my intelligence and who would match me in compassion and generosity....does the word "mentsch" mean anything to you?? politically, i'm conservative. i'm also a vegetarian because i don't want any animals killed on my account. hope to hear from you!
